The tee shot for this hole will require careful consideration as there are three bunkers strategically placed around the green. With only 17% of greenside bunkers, accuracy off the tee is key to avoid getting caught in these hazards. The average golfer can expect to hit their driver approximately 217 yards, which means they will need to use a shorter club for their approach shot.

In terms of weather conditions, players should be aware that altitude and temperature can impact ball flight on this hole. In warmer temperatures with lower altitude, players may see an increase in distance on their shots while cooler temperatures and higher altitudes could result in decreased distance.

For most golfers playing this hole from the men's or senior women's tees (123 yards and 99 yards respectively), a well-struck mid-iron such as a seven iron would be recommended for both accuracy and distance control. For female golfers playing from either the women's or senior women's tees (100 yards), using a pitching wedge or even nine iron would likely be appropriate based on their average distances.

Once safely onto the green, players will find ample space to work with as it measures at an expansive 8690 square feet. There is no water hazard present on this hole but missing long or left could leave you facing some tricky putts due to undulations on certain parts of the green.

Overall, Hole #5 at Morgan Run Resort & Club - North presents itself as an exciting challenge for any golfer looking to test their skills.
